SESSION 1 Commences: Chaired by SmartKlub 
09:00 am – Chair’s Opening Address – David Morgan, Founding Partner, SmartKlub (CONFIRMED)

PRESENTATION TITLE: “Switching cities on to new, collaborative ways of  powering themselves”

We believe there are great many energy technologies to help combat climate change and fuel poverty. What is missing are the business models to make projects affordable, fast and for social good.  SmartKlub is a business model innovator that is the last piece of the jigsaw to trigger an explosion in local energy projects to build resilient communities.  An important part of the our model is a place based network of people and products to make this happen. We believe this is an essential ingredient to ensure energy plays its part in making the promise of Smart cities a reality.

SmartKlub empowers communities to take charge of their energy future through shared knowledge & skills. “Waking up communities to their potential” we are a commercial “for good” company.

PRESENTATION TITLE “Cutting edge aerogel innovations for contaminated atmospheric encapsulation”

   

Speaker Biog:

William Alexander Coetzee  BSc. Elec. Eng., BSc Chem Eng., MBA University of Wales, Group CEO, Researcher.
He has a long history in the engineering services sector where he spent 20 years of his professional career. He started his career with Iscor, now Mittal and progressed to Manager of reticulation including electrical distribution, water, steam and overhead cranes. He later became Manager of a Hot Strip Mill where he gained excellent experience in mechanical, automation and electrical control fields. After leaving in 1995, he did consulting work for Sasol, Mine Groups, Steel Manufacturing and the Chemical and Petro Chemical Industries. This experience would become extremely valuable later in his study of aerogels.

In 2012, he started researching aerogels in detail for the next five years at the University of North West in South Africa and became an expert in their  applications. Highlights of this research entailed identifying a cutting edge solution to stop the process of efflorescence in concrete and related products; formulating insulation coatings which have excellent low thermal conductivity characteristics and also the additional benefit of being able to reduce CO₂ emissions; developing a new generation roof tile also reducing CO₂ emissions; and very excitingly, a new type of catalyst/converter for petrol and diesel engines to reduce the amount of CO₂ emissions (in progress). His understanding of applying aerogels allowed him to develop several coating products that not only protect assets but also save energy and reduce CO₂ emissions.
